Good morning, homeschoolers!
Another week of work and we bet you just can't wait to get stuck into it!
We are encouraging the children in school to blog at least once a week so that there is some sort of communication between home and here. Post photos of any home learning you have completed too. You can use your webcam if you are using a laptop.
We will be getting in touch with you very soon so keep up with the work as we have noticed some absences on Spellzone, MyMaths and Bug Club recently.
Monday: decimals as fractions
Tuesday: understand thousandths
Wednesday: rounding decimals
Thursday: order and compare decimals
Friday: MyMaths tasks.
For the next few weeks, we will be using a different scheme of work for our English lessons, where there will be a writing genre focus. This week, we will be learning about INSTRUCTIONS.
Click on the link below and you will find 5 lessons (one per day) for each genre:
Monday: reading comprehension - language
Tuesday: reading comprehension - word meaning
Wednesday: Identify the features of a text
Thursday: SpaG focus - cohesive devices
Friday: write a set of instructions
We will also have a Spellzone task to complete so make sure you are logging into the website!
Please remember to complete your Spellzone task and continue with your Spell course Pathway.
Read your books on Bugclub and complete the tasks.
Here is the Guided Reading task for the week- The Lighthouse.

You will be using your knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to classify and explore custard, investigating its unusual properties to try and define its state.
Please see the investigation below:
This week, we are looking at hieroglyphics and the Rosetta Stone. Here is a link to explain more about it:
Make a poster explaining what the Rosetta stone is and its importance.
We would then like you to click on the link below:
And, using the papyrus made from last week, use the hieroglyphic alphabet that is halfway down the page to write your name in hieroglyphs and colour them in. You can search for another hieroglyphic alphabet example to show you more detail if you wish.
